I met my true love when I was twenty-seven. He was handsome, charming, witty, and irresistible. Jayden Monroe came along when I was struggling with indecision and made things simple, turned monochrome into vivid color, and forever altered my perspective on life.
I was not naive enough to believe in happily ever after, but with Jayden, it seemed possible . . . until I realized something wasn’t quite right.
You see, I met a man who would be anyone I needed him to be, and after I found out that fact, I knew it would be impossible to walk away. His disorder, however, would change everything I ever thought about love and what it truly meant to accept someone for who they are.
This is not my sob story; this is his success story.
This is an ADHD love story and is for mature audiences only. This book contains explicit sex and strong language.
I confess that I had a misconception about adult ADHD. I assumed it was just a milder and more manageable version of childhood ADHD—essentially difficulty focusing and restlessness. Based on the book description, I couldn’t imagine how the author was going to stretch these relatively benign symptoms into a conflict worthy of a full-length novel.
I’ve been personally affected by bipolar and anxiety mood disorders, so my radar went off when Jayden started displaying familiar behavior that seemed to have nothing to do with ADHD. Of course, I immediately Googled, “Adult ADHD symptoms.” What I found was enlightening, and it made me question why Hilary didn’t do her own Internet search sooner. I suppose sometimes we are so blinded by love that logic fails us, and we don’t heed the warning signs.
I’m grateful this book sheds light on the disorder, while handling it with great sensitivity. Loving the White Liar is a beautiful love story of hope, determination, and faithfulness.
